My husband and I stumbled upon Alexander Michael's looking for something different in Charlotte before we started our Aruban vacation. WOW, were we knocked off our feet! We both tried the Reuben and it was absolutely fantastic. I ordered mine without the Dijon mustard (I'm much more traditional about my Reuben's) but my husband liked his with it. I had... More

Loved the food. Ordered the fried pickles for appetizer and they were delicious. The crab soup is fabulous. Reuben sandwich devine. Beef stroganoff (has a little garlic) was also very good. Carrot cake is a must and best I have ever had and big enough to split! Service was excellent! Prices very reasonable! Wish I didn't live 100 miles away!... More

Stopped by on Saturday after a matinee at Booths Playhouse and we weren't disappointed again. Of course they make the best fried pickles and that's why we keep going back. But this time we tried the "What it is" and "Penne Athena". Both were excellent choices. And tho chase that down was the pumpkin cheese cake and a carrot cake.... More

The whole experience makes you feel like you're home, the food taste is not 'industrialized' it feels pretty home made.

We had a party of 9 including an infant. They had pulled tables together to accommodate us. The staff were so friendly and great service. The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

In many years of living in Charlotte we had never made it to Al Mike's until a concert at the Music Factory brought us to the neighborhood. The next visit only took a few weeks, as we were so impressed. There is a great "neighborhood pub" feel to the place, but the food is not just bar food, it's fantastic.... More

While spending a quick overnight at an AirBnB in the 4th ward, my host recommended this wonderful spot just 2 blocks from his lodging. All factors were excellelnt: location, food, wine and atmosphere. It was thankfully a quick walk in the 97° temp....at 7pm, took the last seat at the packed bar and dining room (on a Monday evening), enjoyed... More
